Information security strategies employ principles and practices grounded in both the prevention and response paradigms. The prevention paradigm aims at managing predicted threats. Although the prevention paradigm may dominate in contemporary commercial organizations, the response paradigm (aimed at managing unpredicted threats) retains an important role in(More)
In the context of information systems and information technology, information security is a concept that is becoming widely used. The European Network of Excellence INTEROP classifies information security as a nonfunctional aspect of interoperability and as such it is an integral part of the design process for interoperable systems. In the last decade,(More)

The written contributions and comments received in relation to the previous and this version of the Research Roadmap have been summarised. That summary and the specific observations from the editors are provided in the Annexes to this version of the Roadmap available on the FInES Web Portal (
Simulation has been adopted in many disciplines as a means for understanding the behavior of a system by imitating it through an artificial object that exhibits a nearly identical behavior. Although simulation approaches have been widely adopted for theory building in disciplines such as engineering, computer science, management, and social sciences, their(More)
Evaluating the impact of Information Technology (IT) projects represents a problematic task for policy and decision makers aiming to define roadmaps based on previous experiences. Especially in the healthcare sector IT can support a wide range of processes and it is difficult to analyze in a comparative way the benefits and results of e-Health practices in(More)
The paper is centered on the role of technology and specifically of IT in the recombination of the factors of production. Particularly, the objective is to see how this technology contributes to the formulation of business strategies, the outlining of organizational structures and the alignment with the business environment. A theoretical framework is(More)
This research proposes and validates a design theory for digital platforms that support online communities (DPsOC). It addresses ways in which digital platforms can effectively support social interactions in online communities. Drawing upon prior literature on IS design theory, online communities, and platforms, we derive an initial set of propositions for(More)
Information systems security is a challenging research area in the context of Information Systems. In fact, it has strong practical implications for the management of IS and, at the same time, it gives very interesting insights into understanding the process of social phenomena when communication information technologies are deployed in organizations.(More)
